Happy Halloween Oct. 31

Photo from 1986.  I put hidden journaling explaining the characters.  I think most people will know "Snow White", but I'm not so sure of "Pink Panther".  This is for the journaling challenge at Scrap 'N Chat.

Our 2 daughters - Halloween 1984.  Sketch #343 from Sketch Inspiration.  Ribbon flower challenge from Scrap 'N Chat.

meeting Charlotte

Jim and I went to David and Caroline Higgins wedding last week-end in Austin, Texas.  I got to hold our great niece Charlotte Ann Higgins.  She is Jim and Julie's first granddaughter after 2 grandsons and she's just so adorable and looks so much like her Daddy, Ryan.  Here's the quilt I made for her.

arsenic poison

Sketch from My Scraps & More.  Art challenge from Scrap 'N Chat.  Photos of Melissia in the school costume parade - one of my favorite costumes I'd made the girls for Halloween. 


I LOVE the story these photos tell.  We took Katie to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  She didn't like being in the fairy costume, kept staring at us in the face paint - she was really taking everything in.  But you can tell how comfortable she was snuggling up on my lap.  Can you tell I love this little girl?  Color challenge from Scrap 'N Chat.

I'm Scarier than you!

Here's my take on the sketch from Scrap 'N chat. 

Our girls were seldom dressed as anything scary, so had to use this title on this layout.  Since the photo's had so much orange in them it was a good time to pull out all those black, green and purple papers.
